NYC Mayor Bloomberg on Obama’s decision to nominate Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court of the USMay 26th, 2009 - 10:19 pm ICT by admin
Statement of Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg on president Obama’s decision to nominate judge Sonia Sotomayor to the supreme court of the United States.
“When I met with the President in the Oval Office earlier this month, I took the opportunity to tell him that Sonia Sotomayor would be an outstanding choice for the Supreme Court, and people whose legal opinions I greatly respect speak very highly of her. She has been an incredibly good federal judge, and having risen from humble beginnings in the Bronx, she brings a perspective that will serve the Court – and our nation – very well. Her story is a perfect example of the kind of opportunity that is available in this City – and this country – to those who devote themselves to their dreams. Judge Sotomayor was first recommended to the federal bench by Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan – and of all his great legacies, she may prove to be one of the most important.”
